After recent revelations that a truck driver in England was ‘unhappy’ with the penis tattoo he drunkenly tattooed on his own leg, Trent Brethalwaite, a Fork Lift operator from Ireland has fired back, saying he’s “really happy” with his own penis tattoo.

According to Mr Brethalwaite, most people with penis tattoos on their legs (estimated at 7 people in the entire world)  describe themselves as ‘happy’ or ‘very happy’ with their penis tattoo, and he can’t understand why one person regretting their ‘penis leg’ – as it’s known in the penis leg community – is suddenly news.

“I can honestly say getting a penis tattooed on my leg was one of the smartest decisions I ever made” said Mr Brethalwaite while sticking a knife into his toaster.  When asked to name some of the decisions in his life that were “less smart”, Mr Brethalwaite nominated ‘stapling his lip to a tree’ and ‘removing his own appendix’ as definitely less smart.

According to Mr Brethawiate removing his appendix was particularly less smart.  “I’d already made the incision and had my hand deep inside my own gut when my mum pointed out I’d had my appendix removed when I was 5.  I tell you what – when I regained consciousness 5 days later in the Prince of Mercy emergency department I felt like such an idiot”

But like many penis leggers, Mr Brethalwaite had his doubters and negative nellies.  “My wife especially was dead against it at first.  She kept saying things like ‘if you get a penis tattooed on your leg I’m finally going to divorce you’.  But I figured that was just because she didn’t like tattoos in general.  I knew once she saw my penis tattoo she’d love it”

When asked what his wife thought now that he actually had a penis tattooed on his leg Mr Brethalwaite replied.  “She’s currently living with her mum, but I’m pretty sure she likes it.  Just yesterday she came over and took a photo and sent it to some solicitor friend of hers.  I don’t think she’d be sharing it with other people if she didn’t love it would she?”

When asked if he had any advice for other people thinking of getting a penis tattooed on their leg, especially in light of recent reports of someone actually regretting it, Mr Brethalwaites message was simple.  “If you’ve thought about it for 30 minutes, and if it still seems like a good idea when your drunk, then just do it.  You don’t want to wake up one day when your sixty and look back in regret, wondering how your life could have been if you’d tattooed a penis down your leg”
